Teachers and Researchers United (TRU) is a movement of graduate student workers unionizing at Johns Hopkins University working to win improvements in our working conditions, and more importantly to build a powerful voice for graduate workers. We are affiliated with SEIU Local 500. From its labs to its classrooms, graduate workers at JHU make the university run. As researchers and as teaching and research assistants, we exercise care and expertise in building the twin pillars of higher education: research and instruction.
